About Tracy

I have spent the last 30 years working in healthcare. My passion is truly caregiving, whether I am at work applying my education and skill as a PTA, or at home with family members that needed care (meals, transfers, adls, exercises, grocery shopping, etc). While I try to be empathetic toward the client, I do encourage the person to do as much as they can, and support them as needed. I enjoy listening to the stories of their lives, and appreciate their wisdom. Caregiving just goes along with my profession as a PTA, and working in acute care. It makes me happy to help someone when they can't be with their family, and just need to feel some comfort when they are unwell, or unable to take care of themselves. Our family has dealt with the need for caregivers for both grandmothers and for my brother, following a brain injury. It was very important for me to incorporate working towards independence, and facilitating a feeling of purpose, when I was with them. I have spent 15 years working privately as a caregiver.
